Ringing week-end 12.07-13.07.2014

This week- end was quite international, we were 6 nationalities. Two ringer`s from France. three exchange students from the university of Trier ( Germany) and our local team. Apart from the local breeding birds we caught the first migrating birds among them have been 3 Sedge Warblers ( Acrocephalus schoenobaenus), 1 Green Sandpiper ( Tringa ochropus), 2 Common Sanpipers ( Actitis hypoleucos), 2 Spotted Crakes ( Porzana porzana) and a few migrating Marsh Warblers ( Acrocephalus palustris). Another intersting catch is an adult Water rail ( Rallus aquaticus)( ringed last year) moulting the primaries and secondaries which allows us to say it`s a breeding bird. All in all we ringed 344 birds, 209 first captures, 123 recaptures and 12 control captures.
